The proposal recently announced by Jair Bolsonaro's Presidium of the Republic to create the so-called "superminister", including the Ministries of Finance, Planning, Industry and Trade and the Secretariat General, was criticized by the economist Gustavo Franco, economic coordinator of the Joo Amodo program (New)
"I do not know if the best solution is administrative, because the minister may have too much responsibility," said the economist. "To have undermined 25 to 30 other secretariats," he said, adding that this process of consolidating ministries is a false solution to managerial economy and efficiency, if not to the extent that it is among the ministries. "
Franco recognizes that in some cases, it may be logical to bring ministries together." But there are separations that are very logical, especially when we think of the national treasury and the national treasury. "
economist participated in Thursday 16, held in the Sabatina by Grupo Estado in collaboration with the Brazilian Institute of Economics Franco said he would like the stay of the President of the Central Bank (BC), Ilan Goldfajn, for the autarchy would like to regime
of the monetary authority. "I wish Ilan to continue to inaugurate this mechanic," he said.
The economist defends the staggered term of the BC Council and said it would be ideal to exchange two directors at the beginning of the first year of the new government, two at the end of the first year and the change of the president at the beginning of the third year or his return to hisoffice. "This is how the dynamism of the Central Bank's government continues," he said.
Franco also said that he saw the need to strengthen the macroeconomic journey. In his assessment, it will be necessary to rebuild the pillar of the primary surplus during the voyage. For him, the axis of the floating exchange was eventually distorted in the last years. "The accumulation of reserves has weakened the pillar of the floating exchange rate, they keep the exchange rate fluctuating or accumulate reserves," he said.
About the inflation targeting regime, the economist said he likes it and does not have to move.
Franco also talked about the recent increase in public office. For him, he has positions in the public sphere with salaries outside the Brazilian reality, which surpass the salaries of higher functions of the private initiative. Of the measures he suggests to improve the efficiency of government spending, Franco said that a more careful analysis of the ORE is needed because "the government officials are also Brazilian, and therefore the privileges must be reviewed."
there is no clear definition of what compulsory expenses are. "One of the economists behind the Real Plan, Gustavo Franco, said Brazil should have an example of development in the Asian countries."
. "Asian countries have taken the last 30 years to make a leap and become rich, market-economy countries that apply the best international practices and therefore have a much larger growth than ours."
The growth strategy of Franco has to be redefined. "In the past 30 years it did not work out, and that is exactly why I think we should have the ambition to connect with what is happening in Asia."
New's plan to increase income is to stimulate private investment. . "Currently, the investment ratio of 15% of GDP, we need to expand to about 25%," he said. According to him, I have to reduce the capital costs in the country. "This is the first step for Brazil to lose the position of international interest champion and make the switch," he noted. "We have to take back the primary surplus and ensure that the government no longer collects a relevant part of the national savings," said the economist at Novo
